From my NA contemporary romance - Circles Divided
Scene Set - Robert is picking up Julie after her evening ballet class.
He sat on his motorcycle, leaning on the handlebars. His helmet rested on his lap and the wind blew through his hair. He wore his jean jacket on over his leather jacket to ward off the brisk November air. His long fingers stuck out of his cut off gloves. His unshaven face broke into a lopsided grin when he saw her step through the doorway.
Julie flung her dance bag over her shoulder, stood erect, raised her head so her nose tilted up and walked along the sidewalk.
"Hey lady." Robert nodded towards the dance studio. "You see a cute little ballerina in there?"
She turned her head only enough to glance at him then continued walking.
Is the love of a girl from wealthy Westland and a street punk from the slums of the Shore strong enough to surpass all that life will throw at them and forge a life together? Is Julie willing to sacrifice her childhood dream of becoming a professional dancer for the man she loves? Is Robert willing to lay down his ties to the gang in order to hold onto his new found love?
Sacrifices must be made, but will they be enough?
